ISLAMIC community leaders and Labor yesterday criticised former army chief Peter Leahy’s provocative warning that Australia should prepare for a 100-year Âbattle with Islamic radicals intent on terrorist attacks.
The defence strategist’s call to arms â€” which included talk of pre-emptive action â€” was attacked as inflammatory, divisive and negligent by Muslim leaders in several states.
Islam isÂ Â inflammatory, divisive and destructive. Show me one society that benefited from Islam and I’ll show you a unicorn.
While Tony Abbott was cautious in his response, Labor immigration spokesman Richard Marles said the comments were “hard to justify”.
Labor stooges have no moral compass. They cannot even justify their own miserable existence.
Islamic Council of Victoria secretary Ghaith Krayem said Professor Leahy’s “ludicrous” statements were “grossly negligent” and raised the risk of right-wing extremism bubbling over.
Are you concerned about “risk of right-wing extremism bubbling over?” I’m not. The comments of the Islamic council are ridiculous. The creep should be laughed out of town.
“Our main concern is there is a growing risk of right-wing extremism in this country and somebody like him coming out and pushing for pre-emptive action, on the back of the Attorney-General (George Brandis)’s comments about it being OK to be a bigot, is a problem,” he said. “Comments like that say to this particular generation of young (Muslims) that the community doesn’t want them and pushes them further away.”
No. Allah divided the world in believers and unbelievers. Muslims shall not force us to submit. To hell with these bigots!
Former Islamic Council of Victoria president Yasser Soliman said Professor Leahy’s comments were “what you would expect toÂ see from someone who sees theÂ world in terms of war and Âconflict”.
Islam is war and conflict. Always is, always has been.
“We would be in a very bad state if we allowed those preÂoccupied with conflict to dictate our view. We need people to stand up and put as much effort into peacemaking as war making.
No. We need to Â export the Islamic headbangers out of the country.
“This perpetual cycle of Âcounter-terrorism and revenge, it’s just madness. Instead of one Saddam Hussein we have thousands of them; instead of one Osama bin Laden, we have thousands.”
Islam is terror. Islam is jihad. Islam is madness. Every adherent of islam has a religious duty to wage jihad to make the world islamic. How much more of that must we suffer?
Islamic Friendship Association spokesman Keysar Trad said ÂProfessor Leahy’s comments were inflammatory and counterÂproductive. “The only thing that would stir such a statement would be a profound misunderstanding of the religion of Islam … Historically we have succeeded in weeding out our radicals,” he said.
Who’s a$$ is inflamed? Counterproductive to what? I’ll tell you what: counterproductive to the spread of Islam. We should support everything that is counterproductive to Islam. Our survival, our self-preservation depends on it.
Melbourne Islamic community leader Sheik Muhammad Abdul Wahid said while the Muslim community supported law enforcement efforts against terrorism, the fate of the Palestinians and the conflict throughout the Middle East was aiding the recruitment strategies of extremists.
Australia must stand with Israel and against Mohammedanism. We have no choice. There are no “Palestinians” and there are no “Rohingya” people. Mohammedans need to stop the fraudulent claims.Â
Mr Marles, speaking on TV yesterday, said “the comments of Peter Leahy are hard to justify in the context of a 100-year conflict”.
Marles is ignorant.
“Surely the right thing to be doing here … is to be working with the Islamic community,” he said.
No. We need to ignore them, ridicule them. Shun them. Make it impossible for them to pursue their goals.
“The leaders of the Islamic community in this country are as appalled with the actions of those individuals as any of us.”
They support it from the bottom of their hearts.
The Prime Minister, speaking on Saturday, said he hadn’t had a chance to look at the comments but “General Leahy was a two-term commander of the Australian Army and he’s a person who I believe should be listened to respectfully and taken seriously”.
Yes, he should be.
He added that “the last thing I want to see is anything that Âsuggests there is some incomÂpatibility between cultures and civilisations”.
This is about our culture and our civilisation. It is our culture and civilisation that needs to be defended against Mohammedan savagery. Abbott doesn’t get it.
